Le Coq Sportif – Years of great tennis

Le Coq Sportif has been sponsoring the brilliant and sometimes controversial Yannick Noah for over 25 years now. Geniuses are like that, the talent usually comes along with a strong personality. After introducing the Johny Mac Nike Challenge Court months ago, we bring today the Le Coq Sportif Noah 87 but we will also watch some tennis of the 80s. Thanks Youtube!

Le Coq Sportif Noah 87

The shoe above was used by Yannick Noah in 1987. It keeps the baketball silhouettes – yes you have read right – it does not feature a tennis style as other shoes of the decade. In the next video, we can watch Yannick Noah, with his Noah 87 on, against Boris Becker in the semifinal of Indian Wells.

We all like sneakers, but the polo shirts are awesome, In fact, one of my favourites is the one that Yannick Noah wore in the 1983 Roland Garros final. Le Coq Sportif paid tribute to it with a reissue to commemorate the 25th anniversary of that win. We let you watch the Yannick Noah epic victory against Matt Wilander – big words – on the 1983 Roland Garros final.
